The Minnesota Vikings escaped Las Vegas with a narrow victory over the Raiders that taught us a lot about the team.

Coming back from the bye week, the Minnesota Vikings hit the road in Week 14 to take on the Las Vegas Raiders, After dropping back-to-back games, the team had to get back on track in order to keep postseason hopes alive.

It was an ugly game, but the Vikings were able to defeat the Raiders 3-0 and move to a 7-6 record on the season. It wasn't a performance that made anyone think they were contenders, but it kept them in the hunt in both the NFC and the NFC North.

Now that Minnesota has a win to end their skid, fans would think the team is getting things figured out. However, there might be more questions than ever surrounding the team heading into their final four games of the 2023 NFL season.

The Minnesota Vikings hit the road next week to take on the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday at noon Central, but first, there is quite a bit that needs to be discussed about this week's game against the Raiders and what it could mean for the team going forward.
